After the bars closed on Tuesday night Riverstone On The Square was vandalized and left with a large hole in their front window panel. Riverstone on the Square, managed by Riverstone Community Church, was surprised to see the damage but this wasn’t the first time a shop window was broken on the square recently. January 9th, the front window at ZMedia was broken out in a drunken brawl.
Dan Olson, Manager at Zmedia state “This always happens after the bars close, our window got hit last month. We need more police in the square after the bars close, this hard on small businesses. Each glass panel cost us 800 dollars to replace and it comes out of our pockets.”
The church which launched in January, 2005 has 65 member/partners and usually an attendance of 120-130 most services. In addition to services, the location is used for concerts and fraternity formals.
Jason Bollinger, Pastor, drove by early and saw the damage first.
Associate Pastor, Brian Guenther later said, “This is our first time hit by vandalism in San Marcos. I will have to turn this damage over to my landlord.”
